This might be a silly question.... Once the trial begins

This might be a silly question....Once the trial begins (and by begin I mean jury selection, objections etc) are we in court all day? Is it M-F, 9-5 until the verdict?

Suing without a lawyer... What do I have to look forward to?

Suing without a lawyer... What do I have to look forward to? After one year of being with an attorney I'm now on my own. I ran out of money. We just filed the petition last week and I'm getting ready to serve it but my lawyer can't help me any more. In fact, I'm left to reading books about what I need to do. I'm suing a group of men for breach of fiduciary duty and defamation (among others), and the defendants lawyer is about to contact me for the first time since my lawyer has been off the case. I need to know how the process works... Anything you can tell me would be greatly appreciated. It's going to be pretty strange questioning the defendants on the stand, how do people in my situation do that?
